The Off-Broadway return of Fuerza Bruta Wayra, an expanded and updated version of the Argentinian spectacle that had its New York City premiere in 2007, officially opened July 8 after previews that began June 27 at the Daryl Roth Theatre.
According to producers, "The culmination of the De La Guarda legacy, Wayra takes the audience on an 80-minute thrill ride from beginning to end, with an extra 20 minutes of heart thrashing fun, fast paced and upbeat live music, on-stage musicians, and breathtaking aerial displays. The newly designed set and scenes are sure to present fans of the previous incarnations (and new fans alike) with fresh experiences and guarantee that Wayra will be a theatrical thrill that floods the senses."
